Phang Nga is a masterpiece of nature – an intoxicating mix of vibrant colours and spectacular sights that, once tasted, linger long. From a lush landscape to the azure waters of bays and the sheer, resonating beauty of islands, this southern destination’s embrace is warm indeed.

The province is located on the Andaman Sea just north of Phuket. Travellers are greeted by the white sand of long stretches of glorious beaches - no finer than Natai Beach - that shimmer under a tropical sun and a culture rooted in friendliness and hospitality. The province’s main tourist area is Khao Lak, where the surrounds are augmented by numerous hotels and an array of bars, shops and restaurants. The area omits a chilled-out buzz that hums in the ears of travellers and creates a mellow cadence to their adventures.

It is through the palate that Thailand and Phang Nga’s impact is, for many people, its most profound. The ambiance of fun that permeates throughout Thai culture has nurtured a love of cooking and led to the creation of some of the best dishes in the world. Southern Thai cuisine is heavily influenced by Malay, Indonesian and Indian spices. It enlivens taste buds and enslaves minds. There are also excellent international food options.

No trip to Phang Nga is complete without getting close up and personal with the destination’s outdoor experiences, whether that be trekking, canoeing or fishing. There’s also island snorkelling and diving at the world-renowned Similan Islands, a refulgent reef structure that proves the area is just as enthralling on the water as it is on land.

Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga Bay is filled with small islands and caves that can be reached by boat. Speedboats promise short trips to islands throughout the bay. Speedboats are also an affordable way to get around Phang Nga Bay, whilst Aleenta Phuket offers guests a Phang Nga Bay Tour.

Khai Island, Khai Nok Island, and Koh Yao Island are worth visiting for a day or an afternoon. The clear waters of Phang Nga Bay make snorkeling a great activity when visiting islands throughout the bay. There is an impressive array of marine life on display, and islands throughout the bay house diverse populations of birds.

Phang Nga Bay held a claim to fame long before movies showcased this unique area. James Bond Island is named after the lead character in the movie it was featured in. This limestone, needle shaped rock jutting out of the water appeared in the feature film The Man with the Golden Gun. The bay also appeared in Star Wars: Episode lll – Revenge of the Sith. Its distinctive look was used as the backdrop for planet Kashyyyk.

The limestone cliffs, numerous caves, archaeological sites, and collapsed cave systems have drawn people to the area for years. Ten thousand years ago the sea levels were so low that one could actually walk from Phuket to Kabi. Today the area is a spectacular bay that offers visitors a multitude of natural wonders to explore, beaches to relax on, and several activities to fulfill one’s adventurous side.

In addition to Hollywood’s touch and the natural beauty found in Phang Nga Bay, the area is well-known for numerous diverse cultures that co-exist in the local communities. These people harvest Nypa palm fronds to use in thatching, practice fishing, and play host to the many international tourists who are drawn to the bay each year.

Phang Nga, Phuket Beach Resort

Located on the sunset side of the Andaman Sea and the pristine Natai Beach, Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa is just 20 minutes north of the Phuket International Airport. This luxury property is passionate about the environment. It was recently awarded the status of Thailand's Best Small Green Resort.

Step outside your luxury room, walk past your exclusive plunge pool, and be cradled by Natai Beach – a 20km stretch of pure white sand that serves as a monument to serenity; separate, yet connected, to a tourist haven’s playful cacophony. Lie on a private sundeck overlooking a beach awarded 5 stars for cleanliness and water quality. Swim and snorkel in tropical waters, warm and calm. Feel the sand between your toes. Sip a cocktail as a setting sun recolours the sky. Open your eyes after a deep slumber and be greeted by heaven on Earth from your bed.

Aleenta's beachfront suites and villas features striking and original room designs that range from spacious lofts to grand villas with five bedroom, each very different from the last. Many of their accommodations come with a private pool or a beach front view, all will give you the ultimate feeling of privacy. While the diamond studded beaches and crystal blue waters are the perfect remedy for the tension of modern life, you will also find that Aleenta spa facilities are second to none.

Spent an incredible week at this magnificent resort earlier this month. What an amazing place to get away from it all. The villas are incredibly designed with comfort & spaciousness being the top priority. The hospitality by the entire team from the Resort Manager Matthias & Executive Chef Valero right on down to every staff member exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks for taking such great care of us. I will definitely be back.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was worried in case I had missed the boat on the Thailand of old. I should not have worried. This small, intimate and friendly five star resort is the most perfect position on a spectacular stretch of beach at Pak Nampran Bay. The emphasis on sustainability and doing things in a green and eco fashion makes you feel like you are also doing your bit. As a passionate foodie, I loved the fact that the menu is created from produce organically grown at the eco farm a few kilometres away. The menu tells you how far each dish has travelled to reach your table. One of my favorite moments was waking up to watch the sunrise from the comfort of my huge squishy bed, which overlooked the beach. Each afternoon, someone delivers a beautiful tray of fresh canapes to your room. You can even choose what time you would like to enjoy happy hour! It's rare to find a high end hotel with such a down to earth, friendly vibe and most importantly of all, a very clear and passionate social conscience. Please keep on doing what you are doing, please don't change. I'll be back and thank you for an unforgettable stay.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon on your premises from December 5 to December 12, 2016. Our stay at Aleenta was absolutely fantastic and felt way too short! We enjoyed your kind hospitality, the extraordinary food, the facilities, the massages and the view we had from our room to the fullest. My husband and I are experienced travellers but we have hardly come across such friendliness, kindness and willingness as from you to make our holidays so special and unique. We will surely come back and already miss you a lot. Thank you so very much again!

An amazing experience! We were a large group for a wedding and it was such a nice experience. I actually ended up sleeping on hammock. The food was really good, and all the service was amazing.
